Half of voting-age Americans say they would not vote for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) if she became the Democratic nominee for president in 2008, according to a Harris Interactive poll released Tuesday.
More than one in five Democrats that participated in the survey said they would not vote for Clinton. Overall, 36 percent say they would vote for the former first lady and 11 percent are unsure of their top choice.
Forty-eight percent of Independent voters also said that they would choose another candidate over Clinton, the poll, which surveyed 2,223 potential voters, states.
Fifty-six percent of men said that they would not vote for Clinton, while 45 percent of women said that she would not be their pick. In addition, 69 percent of those 62 and older said that they would not vote for Clinton.
Nearly half of the respondents said that they dislike Clinton's political opinions and Clinton as a person. Fifty-two percent of people also said that "she does not appear to connect with people on a personal level."
But as opposed to hillary-on-stage, Al thereon has a saving grace: He doesn't try to appear human. To the contrary, Al Gore embraces his humanoid essence. (In fairness to missus clinton, 'inhuman' is a measurably less salable descriptor than 'humanoid.')
To better understand why this is such an advantage for Mr. Gore, simply consider missus clinton's recent 'conversation' (with herself).
It was risible. Unintentional theater of the absurd: A chintzed-and-powdered villain, a soulless, angry, arrogant scold, oozing cloying, saccharine-coated evil, pulsating to the metronomic swing of stubby appendages--claws too short to grab its prey.
(Gesticulation is a dud's only sign of life... and then only if she has a speech coach to prod her.)
It should have been no surprise that David Geffen's comments to Maureen Dowd would so easily topple it.
But to the average clinton lackey, it apparently was.
A barrage of polls are shooting down the endless post-Geffen-imbroglio clinton-agitprop chatter that had called hillary clinton and her machine the hands-down winner.
According to the latest Zogby Poll, Barack Obama is gaining fast on missus clinton. The Quinnipiac University Poll released today reports that Giuliani has widened his lead over missus clinton in New Jersey (50-41).
But it is this week's Keystone Poll that foreshadows the final outcome. Rudy demolishes clinton in blue Pe-Ay (53-37). But more significantly, hillary clinton's favorable/unfavorable rating is a dismal 32/46. (The other candidates have net positive favorable ratings.)
We have argued elsewhere that the only way missus clinton can win elections is to run virtually unopposed, and then only if she remains immobil, hidden, mute, a prisoner of her own ineptitude, repulsiveness and criminality.
But of the three, it is missus clinton's repulsiveness--her ugliness--that will do her in.
The voters routinely ignore ineptitude, forgive criminality, but they never abide ugliness. Never.
Obviously, your hard work has paid off.
50% of adults would not... But since the Dems run the polls, you can bet that 99% of children will.
You forgot about the illegals also.
Expect that percentage to rise considerably after the nation gets large and consistent doses of Hillary's monotone screeching during the campaign.
50% + 1 vote is okay..........
Don;t worry dims. They can only poll the living adults. 100% of the dead adults will vote for the Beast.
Why can't the pubbies make inroads with the dead vote like that?
What's so frightening about this information is that, if accurate, apx 50% WOULD vote for her. I don't like these #s at all.
Of course Hillary will look at this and say "36%! Only 15 more to go!"
They need to be reminded of her "health care rationing solutions" from 1994 to make sure we can get that number over 70%.
Hillary disgusts me, but no more than avowed Marxists like Leaky Leahy or Marxists sock puppets like Osama Obama.
My wife and daughters, however, absolutely loathe her to the extent that even I am incapable of loathing.
She gets even more shrill and grating if challenged. I can see her approval rating plummeting even more after she "debates" someone. Anyone. This would have been exposed sooner if the MSM had ever dared ask her a hard question. Like: "So how come you're still married to a serial adulterer?"
Don't leave out the dead!!! They have rights too!!!
Maybe Hillary can watch reruns of "Commander in Chief" to see how she is supposed to act?
Are reruns of "Commander in Chief" available on DVD? That show was canceled due to low ratings.
Hillary needs to get almost all undecided / moderate voters to gain the 270 electoral votes she will need. It's hard to see any of Bush's red states going to Hillary, but some of Kerry's blue states, such as Pa. could go to the Republicans.
Does that mean another close election. The last two were too close for me thank you. Just what we need another 42 days of wondering...
50% of the voters hurl at the sight of her.
Thank you Mia for your outstanding work!
With a Fred Thompson in the mix, this is a landslide!!

Geez, Mia, you're an artist.
Given the choice between Hillary and a Republican, most Democrats will vote for her. Independents, however, are likely to vote for the Republican instead of Hillary. Just my opinion.
